Description Daniel BEZIVIN 2017-02-28 09:52:45 CET
Description of problem:
Mageia cauldron sta2 .Net install launched yesterday evening.

I let the installation go on all the night (9 hours duration announced) .
When i come back this morning, the installation was waiting for root password but the screen was double and very small. 
However, i succeded in finishing the installation, and Mageia sta2 has rebooted perfectly with a normal display.

I can reproduce with net install too, using VBox (if you needed another confirmation).

And there Barry reported updates (incuding kernel updates ) fixed it.

@ Daniel

Is it fixed for you, too?

Hi Marja
Yes the bug is fixed, no duplicated or small screen, but i encountered a new problem :
At the choice of the monitor , the system has frozen.
I wait a moment but no mouse or keyboard responding.
I took a "instantané " (Menu/ machine "host T").I stopped the machine.
Then i restored it and the installation went on without any problem.
